Topic Information

Year Group Letters 


This half term we have thoroughly enjoyed exploring our 'Australia' topic.

In particular the children have enjoyed creating their own Aboriginal Art paintings, going on a senses walk, looking at and writing senses poetry, playing the didgeridoo and even trying their hand at weaving! Here is some of what we have been getting up to:


A Christmas Surprise!

Today the children had (and thoroughly enjoyed!) their Christmas meal! The children pulled their crackers and enjoyed digging into their turkey dinners whilst Christmas music played in the background. Just as the children were finishing their meals we had a surprise visit from a very special person! Father Christmas came to visit us at Edlesborough and the children were overjoyed with his visit! He even brought us all chocolate to finish off our wonderful Christmas lunch!

This half term Year 1 have been enjoying The Jolly Postman. In the book we were introduced to the wicked witch who received a catalogue for potions. The children created their own potion ideas in Literacy and wrote a set of instructions on how to make their potions. In our Science lesson we then followed our instructions to make some (strange!) and gruesome potions!

One Tomato, Two Tomatoes

This is a song we have been learning in our Music lessons. It is based on the well known nursery chant, 'One Potato, Two Potatoes'.

Victorian Games

Today we played some games that children used to play in the past, many of the games children still play today. 

We played hopscotch, Snakes & Ladders, skittles and skipping games.


Here we are playing Snakes & Ladders!

Jack in the Box Toys

This term we are looking at toys from the past. We know that children in Victorian times played with hoops, dolls, spinning tops and toy trains. 


Today we made our own 'Jack in the Box'. We had to cut out a template and glue the flaps together to make a cube. We then folded strips of paper to create a 'spring'


Have a look at our creations...we are very proud!
